Also, if gaming is your priority, we think that it is the best vivo device in the under PHP 10,000.

To further elaborate why. Watch this video.

Watch: Reasons why the Y20s [G] is the best vivo budget gaming phone yet:

1. Speedy processing performance - Inside, the vivo Y20s is equipped with the 2.0GHz 12nm MediaTek Helio G80 octa-core processor paired with a 950MHz Mali-G52 MC2 GPU.

Thanks to that above-average budget gaming-focused chip, the general operation of this handset is quite smooth.

This handset also has a large 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB expandable internal storage.

The 6GB RAM helped a lot in keeping the performance good even if you have plenty of apps opened.

Meanwhile, the 128GB internal storage allowed us to store plenty of files like photos and videos as well as apps and games.

Speaking of games, this device performed quite well.

For Mobile Legends, there's no ultra in the settings, but we were able to run it with high-graphics settings with HDR.

The gameplay is smooth with no lag or frame drops. Yes, even if there are clashes.

For CODM or Call of Duty: Mobile, it has up to Medium graphics with High Frame Rate.

We never had issues while playing this game as well.

More demanding games like Genshin Impact will struggle on higher graphics quality like several mid-range phones. But, it is playable at low settings. That's still not bad for a budget device.

Also, we noticed that the thermals of this device are stable. It barely gets hot even after playing for quite some time.

2. Large battery capacity with quick chargingFor us, its battery performance is impressive in both benchmarks and actual usage.

It clocked 21 hours at PC Mark's Work 2.0 battery life test which is pretty high.

For actual usage, we got around 2 days of battery before the phone died on a single charge.

Playing resource-heavy games with 4G LTE will drain the battery faster, but it is still longer than a lot of phones at about 8 hours.

Plus, thanks to its use of a lower-res yet decent screen, its battery lasted this long.

For charging, it would have been better if it is using a USB Type-C reversible port. But fortunately, it has 18W of fast charging.

That's a badly needed feature since the battery capacity of this device is quite large.

In our experience, a little over 2 hours is needed to fully charge the device. Not bad.

3. Ultra Game mode - For uninterrupted gaming, this handset has the Ultra Game Mode with Game Assistant and an Esports mode to block nearly all notifications or calls, optimize the controls, and optimize display as well as adaptive frame rate and temperature.

Also, the 
optimizations made by MediaTek's HyperEngine Game Technology for intelligent prediction of WiFi and 4G LTE, the faster response between smartphone and the cell tower, and no data connection dropping when someone calls you as well as the Multi-Turbo 3.0 technology for resolving system abnormalities, improving cooling, and more probably helped in making the gameplay experience better.

Why? This device allowed us to enjoy decent overall gameplay.
